The series "The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power" has been released with two episodes on Amazon Prime Video. This show is the most expensive in history, only the first season has cost 500 million dollars and 5 seasons have already been confirmed, although we will have to see the reaction of the audience and hope that it is not a real failure.
The Rings of Power is a prequel to Lord of the Lord of the Rings and takes place thousands of years before the original trilogy. The series takes place during the "Second Age" of the Middle-earth while The Lord of the Rings took place during the third. Each age has a different duration, in this case the second age has a duration of more than 3000 years and each one of them ends in an important event in the history of Tolkien's mythology. The end of the age of the series will take place with the epic conflict that begins the film of The Fellowship of the Ring.
After understanding the context in which the new show takes place, we might think that it has everything to be a guaranteed success, but the truth is that fans of the original saga have been very critical with the casting and the interpretations of Tolkien’s work. The memes represent the opinion of the people and it seems that from the start the series does not have the support of the audience.
Amazon only has the rights to Tolkien's Legendarium, which is where the mythology of his universe is told, and the Return of the King appendices, which run to about 50 pages. In other words, they had to invent a large part of the story and created new characters. This can become a problem if it is not up to standard, since being at the level of the original writer is not an easy task. This is something the Game of Thrones showrunners know very well.
